Re: POST(Power On Self Test)

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the reply.
I am using WinCE 6.0 and the platform is a custom platform derived from
ARMV4I and having PXA270 processor.

What I want to do is write some code to perform the memory checks(RAM and
ROM check) as part of the POST operation. I feel Bootloader is the place to
do it.
So, I wanted to check whether OS takes care of this POST operations.

I checked the bootlaoder code and I did not see any memory check code.

No, it doesn't. A given BSP may perform some power-on self-test, but the OS
itself doesn't generally do something that you'd modify. Look at the code
for the bootloader for your platform and the OEMInit() for your platform and
see what they do. Also,

You haven't told us: what version of CE, what hardware, what BSP, etc.

I know that WinCE performs some Power On Self Test during boot up.
I would like to know what are the steps it performs and how I can change

Thanks and Regards
